Lebanon naked girl
The family in Lebanon, as elsewhere in the Middle East region, assigns different roles to family members on the basis of gender.The superior status of men in society and within the narrow confines of the nuclear family transcends the barriers of sect or ethnicity. The centrality of the father figure stems from the role of the family as an economic unit.Women gained the right to vote halfway into the 20th century, thirty years after American women suffragists gained the right in the United States.Though the women of Lebanon garnered their right to vote fairly early on, there is still a huge lack of them in Lebanon’s political sphere.There is an extreme lack of women in elected and appointed political positions.To combat the low rate of women's participation in politics and government, the Lebanese Women's Council (LWC) planned a conference in 1998.
Muslim women can legally marry Christian or Jewish men; for example a Lebanese Catholic man can marry a Muslim lady on the condition of getting their children baptised, otherwise, the couple may opt for civil marriage performed abroad, which can be registered at any Lebanese Embassy, thus giving it official recognition (this is a particularly popular option, with Cyprus usually acting as the destination of choice).In 1952 the Women's Political Rights Agreement came about and guaranteed that women would be able to vote.Women gained the right to vote but with a limitation, they had to have an elementary education.The political field in Lebanon, like most of the rest of the world, is male dominated.That is not to say there are no women actors in Lebanon, they are just few and far between.
Women had to have documents that could prove that they had received at least an elementary level education.
